Girl, 6, describes Momo ‘could be in your dreams or she could kill you’

A six-year-old girl has described being targeted in the ‘Momo Challenge’ suicide game while watching Peppa Pig on YouTube Kids.
Bre-Andria Roussell said that the character – with a woman’s head with bulging eyes and body of a chicken – appeared on her screen.
Bre-Andria told her mother Brittany, 27, Momo is like an app and that you can call or text her. She added chillingly: ‘She could be in your dreams or she could kill you’.
MPs in the UK have said there is no evidence that ‘Momo’ is a threat to children in Britain.

She added: ‘When you call her she’s going to hang up – and then it can start getting freaky.
‘You’re going to text her if we could be friends and she will say: “Yes, we can be best friends.”
‘But when you come to her house, when she sends you the address, she’s gonna actually kill you.
‘I don’t do that app because I don’t want to get killed. I don’t want that to happen to me so make sure y’all stay safe, OK? ‘
Her mother, from New Orleans, Louisiana said she felt sick to her stomach about Momo and wants more parents to be aware of the disturbing challenge.

Momo urges children to hurt themselves or even take their lives. Brittany has deleted the app from Bre-Andria’s tablet.
She said: ‘She’s a very good child and listens so I don’t believe I will have the issue with her watching it behind my back.’
Giving advice to parents she said: ‘Ask your children about Momo, show the pictures and talk openly with them.
‘Let them know she is not real, and harming yourself or anybody else will hurt and it’s bad.’
According to the Parentzone website, the Momo Challenge is played over WhatsApp, with the Momo character asking would-be participants to contact ‘her’ and carry out a series of challenges – the final one being suicide.
